2018 Keep RLGH Independent 4 Miler

2018 Keep RLGH Independent 4 Miler


Too slow. Your man is too slow and needs to pick up the pace. These Runologie races are much more competitive than the ones I'd been running, so instead of being in or near the top 3 for my age group, I'm now the back of the middle of the pack. As the competition is getting stiffer, my mins/km needs to be getting better. I feel like I should be running under 5 minutes per km, at least in these 5Ks and 4-milers. I can do 15K averaging 5:20/km in the heat, and I've done a 5K under 25 mins. once when it was cool, so it's a matter of being able to do it when it's hot and humid.

I've started working jump-ups and hill repeats into my routine and have about a month and a half before the Labor Day 8K to shave some seconds off. If I can push the pace and the heat backs off a bit, here's hoping I can be a bit braggadocious after race 13.
